Premier’s instruments come in two- double-ended styles for anterior or posterior use.

Like luxating elevators periotomes are designed to sever the PDL. Unlike luxators however periotomes are not designed to lift the tooth.

PROPERTIES

  • Weight ‐ the Big Easy with its hollow handle reduces the effort needed by the clinician
  • Tactile sensitivity ‐ the medical grade silicone grip on all Big Easy instruments provides better tactile sensitivity because it allows the clinician better handling and control over the instrument
  • Balance ‐ quality workmanship ensures that the Big Easy periotomes are balanced for better handling and easier use
  • Comfort in use ‐ the Big Easy grip provides a passive feedback system requiring less pressure for the clinician resulting in less strain on the muscles
  • Blade thickness ‐ Premier’s blades are thin enough to reach down into the sulcus yet strong enough to resist bending
  • Blade sharpness ‐ clean sharp edges quickly and easily sever the PDL

INDICATIONS

Atraumatic extraction of teeth ‐ especially for implant placement.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

By severing the PDL prior to extraction the surrounding tissue is subjected to less trauma and in many cases allows for immediate placement of an implant. To use a periotome place the blade of the instrument down into the sulcus severing the PDL except for where it connects at the most apical part of the tooth. Afterwards use a periosteal elevator and extraction forceps in the usual manner.

If the dentist feels that the tooth is in danger of breaking while elevating the tooth Dr. Howard Farran leading clinician and editor of DentalTown Magazine recommends that the dentist take a five-minute break from the procedure. During the break swelling of the tissue will act like a hydraulic pump and will help to lift the tooth from the socket usually leading to a much easier extraction.
